Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
Me and my mom. who also has T1D, will be taking part in this year's Walk to raise funds for the millions of people living with and affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). The money I raise will help JDRF fund critical research to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people's lives until no one has to fear developing the disease.
Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin - a hormone essential to the ability to get energy from food. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. T1D's onset has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle, and there is nothing that can be done to prevent it. At present, there is also nothing you can do to get rid of it...there is NO cure. People with T1D must manage the disease by taking insulin several times a day, every day. INSULIN NOT A CURE, and it does not prevent the possibility of serious complications like kidney failure, blindness, and stroke.
JDRF is the largest nongovernmental funder of T1D research and the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. This science is complex and costly, and every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.
Please support me and donate to my Walk fundraising campaign. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible today?
Thank you for your support!
